tv Fox and Friends First FOX News July 21, 2017 2:00am-3:00am PDT
heather: it is friday. is going to be a great one. good morning, you are watching "fox and friends" first. heather: 7 rob: thank you for joining us. heather: we begin with the juice. o.j. simpson granted parole after an emotional please of the nevada parole board. rob: he served nearly 9 years for armed robbery and kidnapping. >> reporter: this is exactly the outcome everyone was expecting. the only question seemed to be with this four person parole board take into consideration
the double murder of o.j. simpson's ex-wife and her friends back in 1994, a crime for which he was acquitted but most people think he was guilty of. all the drama seemed to evaporate when one of those parole board members held up a stack of emails and letters and said a lot of people think you are guilty, we are not going to take that into consideration so the drama evaporated. o.j. simpson rambled on as he made his case for parole, he was often defined saying he never knew guns were drawn during the robbery even though at the trial the two men who brought guns testified that oj told them to bring heat but simpson did ultimately say he was wrong and apologized. >> i'm sorry it happened, i wish they had never called me. it wasn't worth it. 9 years away from my family is not worth it. i am sorry. >> reporter: something
completely ignored the murder of his wife and ron goldman, simpson was found liable in a wrongful death suit and ordered to pay them $33 million. oj will leave prison on october 1st, where he lived before the robbery, he has a close friend in naples and the youngest children live in st. petersburg among commissions for his parole. he's not allowed to have any illegal drugs, not allowed to get drunk or hang out with felons. heather: a very interesting person, very interesting crime and this whole thing, like you said, you think about what happened in 1994. mahmoud abbas heather: this is what he had to say about living a conflict free
life. >> i have been pretty good with people. rob: the most interesting thing he said all day, nobody accused me of pulling a weapon on anybody which was one of those -- did you just say that? that was a tough one to digest, a trend where the moment. here is mark furman who if you recall worked on this case and got a lot of heat for how he handled this case and went about working for the prosecution, his side of the story. >> folks call it what it is, they wanted rid of mister simpson. they were going to parole him. nothing he said would make a difference, this sounds a little harsh but that is the reality and you are right. everything he did i have been to a few parole hearings and violated a few people's parole and what he said about those weapons, the very reason they
are talking about parole would have kept them in prison in the 12 hearings i have been in but somehow he got out. you are seeing a classic sociopath, narcissist. maybe even a psychopath and he is talking, manipulating the crowd, doing exactly what he tried to do in the civil trial but in this instance there was no cross-examination where he had an opponent who would breakdown what he was trying to say. >> a lot of people who covered that trial with nicole brown and ron goldman were saying the same thing. >> furman in that case is taking get too far. of the end of the day you can kill somebody and go to jail for 5 or 7 years, he went to jail for 9 years for taking back his own stuff which -- they did send him to jail for too long and it was getting even for what happened. >> one of his victims testified at the hearing yesterday and said he should be let out.
in october -- in the meantime we have other stories to start talking about at this hour and this is developing for you. police return to a pennsylvania farm where man who confessed to killing four men and claims to have killed more searched teams were back and cosmo donato's 19 acre property. during his confession to the murders of the four men the schizophrenic also claimed he killed two other people when he was 15 years old. he had 40 run ins with police. so far police have not found anything else. rob: jeff sessions is here to stay despite criticism from donald trump. the white house saying the president has confidence in sessions to get the job done. >> reporter: the white house making it clear donald trump has confidence in his attorney general, jeff sessions even after his tough talk to the new
york times. sarah huckabee sanders reinforcing the president's stance. >> the president was disappointed in the attorney general's decision to recuse himself but clearly he has confidence in him or he would not be the attorney general. >> reporter: all that despite the interview with the new york times where he expressed frustration over sessions's decision to recuse himself from the russia probe. >> if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and i would've picked somebody else. it is extremely unfair to the president. >> as for jeff sessions he says he plans to stay on the job. >> we love this job, we love this department and i plan to continue to do so as long as it is appropriate. i'm totally confident we can continue to run this option in
an effective way. >> reporter: all this is robert mueller's russia probe expands its scope, bloomberg news reporting he will examine a range of business transactions by the president and associates, transactions in question largely involving russian interest. donald trump warning mueller beyond the scope of the probe into ties between the administration and rushing tells the new york times anything unrelated would be a breach. rob: thanks. former speaker of the house newt gingrich, the leaks are not plugged in washington and they have to figure out who is responsible. >> the leaks have to be from inside mueller's team. wise nothing being done? why are people not being fired? it is reasonable to say this is
a dangerous witchhunt that mueller keeps expanding because he can't find anything in the original charge. >> jeff sessions cracking down on sanctuary cities. philadelphia police refusing to act as immigration agents, and refusing to bring back the sanctuary city order. >> newly appointed ambassadors to washington dc today, the president said to take part in a ceremony at the white house formally presented with documents identifying diplomats as representatives of their government and empowered to speak for them. >> a top priority in preventing terrorism. homeland security secretary john kelly visiting the port of los angeles this week. while he was a board members of the coast guard conducting a
training demonstration simulating boarding of the ship with a radiological threat. kelly said the current port security is adequate but officials came up with changing threats. the laptop ban is over. that the permit of homeland security now saying airlines and airports complied with the first phase of john kelly's security enhancement. electronic devices no longer in effect for passengers flying into the united states from airport since we 10 muslim majority countries. rob: donald trump declaring isis after days numbered after meeting for security briefing with the nation's top military brass at the pentagon. >> isis is falling fast, very fast, thanks. rob: national security team briefing the commander-in-chief on the terror group and global deployment of troops and discussing a plan to send 3000 to 5000 troops to stabilize
afghanistan. rob: six african teenagers who came to the us to compete in the international robotics competition are missing and there are fears they may no longer be in the country at all after two were spotted crossing the border into canada. the team mentor told police they had one year visas. the embassy in burundi claims it had no idea they were even in the us. police not suspecting foul play. rob: the search for survivors after a major earthquake rocks popular tourist spots, a number of islands in greece and turkey, two people are dead, 100 hurt, the 6.5 magnitude quake crumbling buildings and covering
many streets with debris. the shaking was happening right there. two tourists killed when a wall collapsed on top of them. it is the middle of summer. everybody is there. heather: taking journalism to a new level, a covert cia officer in iran. >> undercover officer at the central intelligence agency. i find that unconscionable. heather: the journalist who got scolded by the cia director. >> o.j. simpson soon to be a free man. our next guest a forensic expert who testified for the defense in 1994-95 during oj's murder trial, why he says oj deserves his freedom. heather: better skilled, better jobs, better wages, sound familiar? >> papa john's.
afi sure had a lot on my mind. my 30-year marriage... ...my 3-month old business... plus...what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical
or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. rob: an emotional o.j. simpson reacting to the reality of freedom he will soon have, granted parole after nine years behind bars on armed robbery and kidnapping charges. heather: forensic power apologist who testified on behalf of oj during his murder trial and thank you for joining us this morning. it is an honor to have you here. you watched along with millions of people, what was your reaction? >> the ruling he was entitled to parole on the basis of his
behavior after being incarcerated was valid, it was a reasonable one and properly done. rob: the case we were trying to make when listening to the sound bite earlier, the situation is this was not him on trial again for 1994. this with armed robbery and kidnapping and people don't just go to jail that long for an armed robbery. he was in jail for a long time for that offense. >> 7 million people incarcerated, on parole or on probation in this country and we know very little about the parole probation system and a lot of things have to be fixed. as they point out, the judgment isn't based on what happened previously but after he gets in
jail. heather: the armed robbery, you didn't think there was enough evidence to begin with. >> there was evidence for the armed robbery but the kind of evidence that normally would lead to one tough 3 year sentence and as mark furman pointed out the sentence was so much longer, revenge for what many people think was a bad verdict in the murder case. rob: basically catalogs exactly how it went down, he is going to get out, to be a free man. 1995, the murder trial. they reviewed it for the defense. most fascinating part of this
case. nicole brown's head was almost completely taken off. did you see a crime of passion? >> a crime of passion because of all the excessive industries, cuttings on each body which were beyond what was necessary to cause death. one thing about the statement the head was almost cut off. owner neck is 5 or 6 inches thick and only one or two inches of soft tissues. most of the neck is the spine bone. the spine bone wasn't cut through. that is bad enough. it wasn't be heading. heather: to this latest crime,
the armed robbery. a lot of folks said it was a crime of passion as well. he believes there were pictures of his family, and the memorabilia. his emotions got the best of him. >> they did. an interesting analogy. both of these times, the murders, 2007 oj became emotionally upset, at the time of the trial, the case presented to the jurors, they can't back two or three hours, traveling to
los angeles, the prosecution did not present a strong enough case which was different in the civil action where he was not guilty of the crime. >> there are 40 murders a day in this country. half of them nobody is going to go to jail. it wasn't the case that wasn't solved. most murders aren't solved to the deck of someone going to jail for it. >> we do appreciate it. >> 20 minutes after the top of the hour, at chipotle, the health department may have
cracked down the cause. rob: the army veteran forced to apologize for flying the american flag. dearthere's no other way to say this. it's over. i've found a permanent escape from monotony. together, we are perfectly balanced. our senses awake. our hearts racing as one. i know this is sudden, but they say...if you love something set it free. see you around, giulia copdso to breathe better,athe. i go with anoro. ♪go your own way copd tries to say, "go this way." i say, "i'll go my own way" with anoro. ♪go your own way once-daily anoro contains

nora virus which is the suspected cause of the illness. tripoli and virginia is back up and after undergoing a throat cleaning. chipley ceo apologized in a statement and said, quote, i made a commitment on behalf of chipotle to make our restaurants the safest place to eat and i'm confident in the procedures we have implemented a. can't catch a break. this is pretty cool. amazon, a robot that will follow you around. apparently they filed a patent to build an army of robots that would follow you around at the airport, charge your phone and try to sell you things. when you need to charge a smart phone you can make a request for a robot to come to your location using center data or the robot can find you using an apps to recognize when your cell phone has fallen below 10%. reports a the patent was filed
